Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen, the Anthony W. and Lulu C. Wang Curator of American Decorative Arts at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, recently visited Bowdoin to speak about the research of Barbara Cooney, her aunt, to prepare paintings for Hattie and the Wild Waves and Eleanor.

The event was free and open to the public, and presented by the Bowdoin College Museum of Art in conjunction with the exhibition: Barbara Cooney: Drawing Biography.
